“The boodling aldermen are indeed the swine of our civilization but unfortunately there is no Antiochus to offer them as sacrifices to the offended gods… the citizenry is justified in turning to the April polls with the hope they will show Chicago has at last wearied of being represented and governed by the vilest of her citizens.” 
William T. Stead When Christ Came to Chicago 1894

“No scoundrel need apply for the position of alderman in the City of Chicago.”
Civic Federation
pamphlet 1894
